Sri Dasa spoke at length to the American and Indian students about Srimad Bhagavad Gita. He explained that Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson and MK Gandhi and many more eminent theologians’ religionists and politicians appreciated Gita and its profound message. He added that only humans can ask the questions like: who am I? Where did I come from? Where do we go at the end of our life? And only humans can find the answers to these questions. He explained to the students that practice of religion separates the man from animals.
He further implored the students to pursue the innate human inquiries and fulfil the ultimate goal of life. The students were very enthralled and were very inquisitive to study Bhagavad Gita.
